Okay, you live in a Canadian urban center.Pocketbook? How about a ridicolous ballooning debt?
Ah yes, tax credits.The childcare thing is a bit of a scam, if you don't use a "licenced daycare" , no money for you. The CPC giving money for childcare to be used by parent as they saw fit, was better, as we paid a friend to care for our kids.
Child care is just as expensive in rural Canada where people make significantly less money.Okay, you live in a Canadian urban center.
You're paying 2000 a month on daycare, per child.
You are making the median income, 62k per year. 1/3 of the money you make is going to childcare.
Lets say you're lower income, 42k a year. More than HALF your income is going to childcare. One may be forced to stay home because its not worth it to work.
The LPC says its going to get childcare from 24k a year to 2.4k a year. Saving someone with one kid in daycare 22k a year. Saving someone with two kids in daycare 44k a year.
Do you honestly, seriously, not ironically, think that a person in line to save 22k a year cares about the ballooning debt in that case?
This is true.Child care is just as expensive in rural Canada where people make significantly less money.
Every Canadian should, but a lot of Canadians were oddly comfortable spending near half a trillion to battle the pandemic. Turns out 30 billion on childcare over 5 years isn't going to turn too many heads.Debt affects interest rate and taxation. Every Canadian should damn well give a crap about it. Ballooning debt will hamper an economy badly.
Fine.I am NOT asking why the Conservatives didn't get in. NO. Re-read my post.
He also kept promises. But here's the kicker. Vote for the chance, a good chance seeing as 8 provinces have signed childcare agreements with the feds to date, to get a national childcare program, or vote NDP and risk the CPC winning and O'Toole killing the program, or vote CPC and watch O'Toole kill the program?I am asking why the hell would anyone vote for Trudeau this time around. All his great ideas now? He broke promises for the last six years so why expect different.
FPTP makes it so that 3rd parties have hard time winning plurality, thus it was Trudeau versus O'Toole, LPC platform versus CPC platform.Again, why would anyone with a sense of the real world ever put Trudeau back in power in 2021?
How do you explain the importance of budgeting to a generation that can't balance their own budgets?Nobody really made that a central issue. Both the liberal and CPC platform coating were relatively the same. In fact the CPC budget will balance itself plan was the same one the LPC had a few years ago.
I know that CBC is still showing him as a Liberal, but in reality, he is an independent.Chris Voung (Spadina-Fort York) - former Liberal candidate (and "Naval" reservist) is leading in this race by over 1300 votes with over 99% of ballots counted. The allegations against Voung came to light after advanced voting had closed.
Yeah, and in the grand scheme of things, the LPC being 12-14 seats short of majority means little if the Bloc and NDP have 34 and 25 seats respectively.I know that CBC is still showing him as a Liberal, but in reality, he is an independent.
I guess JT is glad that most urban Canadians don't understand that someone ends up paying for that...Ah yes, tax credits.
Unless you're not working, in which case no tax credit. And if you cannot get a spot, you cannot work, so no tax credit. And if you're income is low, your tax credit isn't going to be that high, so the 24k paid towards childcare doesn't really do anything.
And even at the max eligibility a family gets 6000 per year, but that drops childcare costs from 24k to 18k, still rampantly unaffordable. And according to O'Toole himself, that would be for the lowest tax bracket, so those earning under 40k a year.
The CPC childcare plan was hot garbage and nobody should be surprised that urban Canada flocked towards the LPC and the LPC childcare plan.
I'm not going to go over the economic benefits of childcare yet again.I guess JT is glad that most urban Canadians don't understand that someone ends up paying for that...
The CPC is free to embrace this opinion in perpetuity from the opposition benches.Nothing is free - it either comes back in your tax burden or that of your children or great grandchildren.
